Yuquiyú is a rustic retreat in the foothills of Puerto Rico’s El Yunque rainforest. We are a glamorous camping, or “glamping,” destination that offers artisan-crafted treehouses with a balcony, designer furnishings, a granite kitchenette and a slate bath. Surrounded by a tropical garden with a cascading river, each treehouse has an iconic view of El Yunque Peak. From Yuquiyú, it is just fifteen minutes to the heart of El Yunque rainforest, twenty minutes to famed Luquillo Beach and thirty-five minutes to Old San Juan. With one of our treehouses as your base, you can discover the rainforest, multi-hued beaches, sea turtle nesting sites, coral reefs, a bioluminescent lagoon, ancient petroglyphs, a Spanish colonial city and Culebra Island. The rate for La Cara de Indio, La Cascada or El Mirador is from $200 per night. Tax adds 7%. Each treehouse can accommodate a maximum of two people. The minimum age is 18 years. The minimum stay is two consecutive nights. No pets are allowed.

Traveling to Puerto Rico with the recent earthquakes and power outages we weren’t sure what to expect. With or without power, this place is simply amazing! Great staff, fresh fruit, beautiful views and coqui frogs singing you to sleep every night. They even cooked us dinner on the fire and we ate by candlelight on the restaurant deck during the power outage. The fresh brewed kombucha was also a nice touch. Bring some sturdy hiking shoes and a backpack, so that you can enjoy their trail down to the river for some meditation on the yoga deck. Yuquiyu is also a great base camp for some day trips up into the El Yunque rainforest or to find some of the hidden Taino petroglyphs. We had great conversations with Manny and the team about the future of the Rainforest Farm. We look

We stayed in Yuquiyu for eight nights. Every day I've learned to appreciate the place more and more. Yuquiyu is lovingly and responsibly planned and managed. I genuinely consider myself privileged being one of the maxima of 6 guests that stay at a time at Yuquiyu. The treehouses are surrounded by carefully cared for rainforest that increases the privacy of each cabin. It is a multisensory magical experience with the colors, the sounds, the textures, the tastes, the smells all engaged. We were outside for 24 hours, with windows and doors to the terrace always open. Our gentle visitors were salamanders, geckos, and birds. The place is safe, clean, and well cared for by the staff. Manny and Fiya respond to every request with beautiful and warm attentiveness. We had three dinners -

I spent two nights here in La Cascada treehouse. The treehouse was clean and had everything needed to prepare meals if desired. I loved the rain shower with a huge window open to the rainforest view below. The water pressure was great and there was always hot water. The views are just beautiful and the constant sound of the river below is relaxing. Unfortunately, it rained quite heavily both days during my stay which made the trek to and from the treehouse quite slippery and difficult. I would definitely recommend bringing only a backpack with your things and wear hiking shoes or sandals with good traction that can get wet! Bring a rain jacket and an umbrella. The treehouse was stocked with two really nice flashlights but it would be a nice addition if they added two

Put briefly, this place is magical. The grounds are surreally beautiful, the treehouse we stayed in (El Mirador) is well-appointed, and the staff is awesome. (Manny gets a special shout-out for being such a wonderful host.) This definitely isn't an upscale hotel--as in, there are bugs and other wildlife in the living space--but if you are OK with that, this place is pretty much unbeatable. And if you are a nerdy bird-watcher like me, you'll be in heaven. We saw many endemic species--the tody, the Puerto Rican woodpecker, etc.--right from our balcony. And we even had a visitor (the banaquit) inside!

I feel so lucky to have been able to stay at such a special place. Yuquiyu is such a gem and we plan to return again within the year. The fresh air and being surrounded by life is truly healing. This is not a place for folks who want TV, a spa and staff waiting on you hand and foot. This is truly a retreat, where you and your loved one can fully be present. Falling asleep to the noises of the rainforest, fresh fruit, taking open air showers and noting the biodiversity as you walk to the private and clean river are memories I will treasure. Thank you so much to Martin who started this place, if it was not for being queer owned we may not have ventured into trying this spot out. Very inclusive and welcoming. Shout out to Manny and Fiya for an amazing private meal!
